How Does it Work?

The insertion of threads under the skin using a needle and their upward pull to keep them tight helps in keeping the skin taut. Simultaneously, where the threads are placed, there is an injury that calls for a natural wound-healing response involving a boost in collagen production and skin regeneration.

Pre-Treatment Instructions

  • During the initial consultation, inform doctor about previous treatments and current intake of medications (if any). It is advised to not consume any anti-coagulation or anti-inflammatory drug and even alcohol at least 2 days before the treatment. Taking vitamins or other herbal supplements is also not recommended.
  • Consult a doctor first for personalized medical advice on whether to go ahead with the thread lift treatment or not.
  • Avoid applying makeup or using any harsh products on the skin to be treated, on the day of the treatment.

What Does the Procedure Entail?

The doctor makes use of a cannula or thin needle to insert various threads underneath the skin once the treatment site is numbed with local anesthesia. The overall procedure lasts for 20-40 minutes.

Result and Recovery
After a thread lift, the patients get a tightened and firm skin. Just after the first treatment, the skin looks naturally rejuvenated and continues to show improvements in its appearance over months as new connective tissues are formed. The results are temporary and subtle.

The patients can return home immediately after the treatment and resume their daily routine within 24 hours. They can expect to experience slight swelling and bruising on and around the treated area for up to 5 days. After two days of thread lifting, they can be socially acceptable.

Aftercare Instructions

  • Avoid using washing the treated skin with soap and water for 24 hours.
  • Do not apply moisturizers for a few weeks. 
  • Avoid applying makeup for several days. 
  • Complete the prescribed antibiotic course to prevent infection. 
  • Sleep in a supine, slightly-raised position for at least a week.  
  • Never rub, scratch, or massage the treated skin.
  • Avoid solarium, sun tanning creams or beds, saunas, hot baths, steam rooms, and strenuous physical activities as well as dental appointments for three weeks as that may loosen the threads.  
  • Do not schedule any massages or aesthetic procedures on the treated area for at least a month.
